Landing

The place where we landed seemed good.
There was water, and food, and air,

but others were there before us,
and they told us we couldn’t stay.

There’s no room here, they said.
We can’t help you.

So we,
the last humans,
went back to our ship
and continued our search
for a home.

I meant to post this yesterday to mark the Climate Strike. "Better late than never" is perhaps an appropriate phrase.
